Experts to lecture in US cities this spring about new human origins research

Should we follow Atkins or Pritikin to eat well and live right? How did sunlight effect skin coloration? Why and how did we begin to walk upright?

The Leakey Foundation has joined forces with scientific organizations across the US to present the 2004 Speaker Series on Human Origins which will attempt to answer these questions with new evidence and theories.

The 2004 series will feature the latest discoveries and developments in Neandertal research, human physiology, archeology and hunter-gatherer studies. The Speaker Series on Human Origins is produced in collaboration with local partners in seven cities. This year, The Leakey Foundation welcomes four new collaborators to the Series - the American Museum of Natural History, the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, Colorado College and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles.

"With this series of lectures, The Leakey Foundation continues Louis Leakey's vision of exploring human origins through a multi-disciplinary science," said Kay Woods, President of The Leakey Foundation. "The featured speakers strive to understand human ancestors and the ecology of their times, their biology, and their culture, as well as the behavior of our closest living relatives, the great apes. "
